Create your own team and raise funds and awareness for The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation. The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is a non-profit corporation formed by Julie and Doug Hutchison to provide help and support to individuals who have epilepsy across the United States. The main focus is to raise funds to provide grants for fully-trained seizure-response dogs. These trained service dogs may be able to detect an oncoming seizure and provide warnings and/or respond after the onset of a seizure. The Foundation also provides grants for Emfit, SmartWatch and SAMiAlert monitors for those in need. 

Fundraising:

The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation serves individuals, families and communities affected by epilepsy by raising awareness of the common yet little-known condition SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy), by providing support and equipment for prevention of this occurrence, and by creating a safe space and raising awareness within the greater community.

The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation grants comfort and hope to those affected by epilepsy through providing monitoring resources, vital information, and a safe haven for conversation and community.

Our main goal is to raise awareness of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected and Unexplained Death in Epilepsy) and to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and families living with epilepsy.  We raise funds to provide education about SUDEP and to provide seizure response dog grants and movement monitors that help to protect against SUDEP.

We stay up-to-date on current trends in medical technology in order to be able to provide the most effective devices as they become available. 

We respect the value and quality of life of every person living with epilepsy.

We are dedicated to providing opportunities that allow individuals and families greater independence, increased confidence, ability to enjoy social environments, and community understanding.

About us

The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is a Colorado non-profit corporation formed by Julie and Doug Hutchison to provide help and support to individuals who have epilepsy across the United States.  To date, we have provided assistance in 46 of the 51 States.  The main focus is to raise funds to provide grants for fully-trained seizure-response dogs that may be able to detect an oncoming seizure and provide warnings and/or respond after the onset of a seizure. The Foundation also provides grants for Emfit, SmartWatch and SAMiAlert movement monitors for those in need. The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation is named for Julie and Doug's beloved daughter Chelsea, who died in her sleep during a seizure in April of 2009. SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) was the cause of her death. During the 6 years that Chelsea had seizures, no one ever told the Hutchisons that a seizure could take her life other than through an accidental fall or drowning. As a result of that omission, The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation informs those living with epilepsy of the risks and raises awareness of SUDEP so that no other families are blind-sided.
